We are really good at celebrating athletes who achieve incredible, new standards in sports, but we should also be good at celebrating those athletes who are not only super-talented jocks but who also use their positions of influence to give back to society in important ways.
Alex Honnold @alexhonnold is easily the most famous rock climber in the world. What’s so incredible is that a rock star like Honnold continues to lead a dirtbag, humble life devoid of all the usual “rock-star” excesses. He says he gives away 30 percent of his income to charities, including his own Honnold Foundation—a non-profit supporting solar-energy projects around the world that will help reduce our carbon footprint.
The Honnold Foundation is also now on Instagram: @honnoldfoundation. Give them a follow!
It’s humbling to know and be friends with a guy like Honnold, who has just about every climbing record in Yosemite, from the first free solo of El Capitan to the Nose speed record, which he recently achieved with Tommy Caldwell @tommycaldwell in just under 2 hours! But what’s truly inspiring is how he has turned his career and passion into a vehicle for giving back. Thanks, Alex, for the inspiration and being a true leader in the climbing world. **
You don’t have to be in one of the most stunning locations on earth—New Zealand’s South Island—to take advantage of golden-hour light … but it sure does help.

“The Wilderness holds answers to more questions than we have yet learned to ask.”― Nancy Wynne Newhall. After an eight-mile hike, Dan Duane (@danduane) seeks some answers, if not surf, on the Lost Coast of California.
Mirco Lazzari (@mircolazzari) exudes a genuine passion for shooting high-speed motorsports. This segment is from our film INSPIRED, which documented 5 professional photographers at work using the @NikonUSA#D5. With Mirco's segment, our game plan was to do as Mirco does, which meant bringing out the long glass! We relied heavily on the Nikon Nikkor 600mm f/4 lens and the 400mm f/2.8 for many of these shots. We even got out the 800mm f/5.6 just to have even more fun! @NikonUSA@SanDisk@gtechnology@freeflysystems@smallhd@connexhd#NikonNoFilter
